About the Author
Judith Waite Allee and Melissa L. Morgan coauthored "Homeschooling on a Shoestring: A Jam-Packed guide for Parents."
Judith has visited "un-met friends" in sixteen states and Mexico, along with her husband, John, and daughter, Nancy. They've had the privilege of staying with families who participate in hospitality programs, giving them an insider's view from a friendly front porch, instead of a stranger's view from a motel room. Judith's Web site, www.DreamsOnAShoestring.com, offers a free e-mail newsletter for educational family travelers. As former foster parents, she and her husband have traveled with up to three children. Judith speaks on a variety of topics, including parenting, family literacy, advocacy for children in foster care, and homeschooling.
Melissa L. Morgan and her three children travel with her husband on business, on treks across the country to visit family, and on numerous field trips, taking advantage of educational opportunities in the real world. Melissa currently writes an online newsletter, "Parents Are Teachers, " and manages a Web site, www.eaglesnesthome.com, to provide a forum and resources for Christian writers and homeschoolers.
